The Secretary General to the Nicaraguan Minister of Labour, José León Argüello, has announced that Friday, July 19, 2013, would be a non-working public holiday in Nicaragua, but that it would not be accompanied by additional public holidays, as had been hinted at recently, and had in fact happened in previous years.

Earlier this week (2013-07-11), Rosario Murillo, the Nicaraguan government's lead spokeswoman, had issued a communiqué announcing that her husband, President Daniel Ortega, would soon issue a decree declaring a non-working public holiday in Nicaragua on account of the annual July 19 public holiday.

In the past, a one-off, July 20, non-working public holiday had often been adjoined to the annual, July 19, public holiday (2012-07-14, 2010-07-09 and 2009-07-15), and many observers had expected that this would be the case again.
